Default Any good 'advance wars' like games?

Looking for a good turn based strategy game similar to advance wars. Multiplayer would be good too. Thanks in advance.

Mecho Wars is the only one that comes to mind immediately.

Battle for Wesnoth- On sale now for a dollar, get it before its gone. An excellent turn based strategy. Chalk full of conent. Not exactly like advanced wars, but in rhe same vein, and still very good. Also, cross-platform multiplayer, so yeah. Did i mention that its a DOLLAR? Seriously, cant go wrong with that kindof deal. Snap it up while you can. You can even try it out in the comPueter beforehand for free(just go to their site)

Rogue Planet by Gameloft and Agharta Studio is probably the closest game I can think of to advanced wars. Graphics (very good), characters, and gameplay are very similar. There's a semi-long campaign, skirmish mode, online/local multiplayer.

Right now, It's priced at $4.99, but It's been on sale for $.99 before and could possibly be reduced again soon.

Mecho Wars- simple, great art style, mutliplayer

Uniwar- hex based with a bit more depth, has multiplayer and is realistically the closest to advanced wars

Battle of Wesnoth- hex based with unit leveling and quite a bit of depth, its fanatsy themed and has more content than u could shake a stick at... cross platform multiplayer i believe

i havent played rogue planet so no comment here, but it looks quite simillar to advance wars.

rogue planet is a good game, if not a little over priced. the graphics are good, gameplay good, and controls good. only problem is alot of stalemates because alot of the maps are connected by a bridge and once both sides are filled, there is noway across because you cant move over other characters, hence you just sit there killing one person during your turn, then they make another and move up and your stuck again. but if you are good you can mostly negate this problem. still i love the game.

Transformers G1: Awakenings might fit the bill. It's a little more simplified than Advance Wars, but it's a highly enjoyable game.

It's $2.99 US at the moment, but it often goes on sale for $0.99.

I have nevr played advanced wars, but Mechowars is made by the same PpL so you'll find similarities.

Rogue Planet is my 1st iOS title that I completed, Nice Shite!

Highborn is a hex based (I don't love hexbased tbses >.< but the humor is good, I don't like the units being moved like a pawn, thats just me I guess)
